“You cannot kill a breeze, a wind, a fragrance; you cannot kill a dream or an ambition.” - Michel Onfray
So I’ve been working on compiling a list of the fun, free
Flash Fiction contests I have come across over the past couple of weeks. Below
is the list of contests that run every week. More info can be found at the
link/blog of each contest. You can follow the authors/holders of these contests
on Twitter to get updates as well.
I’ll be adding more whenever I can and keep you posted.
*If you hold a weekly/monthly 'free' online contest, please reply to this post with the link and details so I can add you to the list.

Five-Sentence Fiction (5SF) is “about
packing a powerful punch in a tiny fist. Each week there will be a one-word
inspiration. Anyone wishing to participate will write a
five-sentence story based on the prompt word. The word does not have to
appear in your five sentences, just use it for direction.”
